Student Wellbeing Action Team (SWAT)
William Gillis, Charlie Johnson, Audrey Middleton and Jeremy Yuen-Love are currently participating in a Maroondah City Council initiated and run Student Wellbeing Action Team (SWAT) camp from Monday 7 to Wednesday 9 May. We look forward to supporting them with their chosen well-being initiative that will benefit the Tintern Grammar community.
Morrisby Online Careers Testing and Feedback Evening
Thank you to all families/guardians who attended our feedback evening and the students were exceptional during the two hour testing in the morning. Students have now been given electronic access to the website at www.morrisby.com and they can access their reports electronically. Year 10s have been encouraged to save their initial report as they are exploring the different features during our pastoral sessions. This data will assist the Careers staff during the Year 10 Subject Choice Interviews that have commenced and will continue right through to early Term 3.
Pastoral Themes for this Week
The Mentors raised safety concerns relating to students walking through our car parks and across roads texting or oblivious to their surroundings while wearing headphones. The video clip was shown to students as a means of generating discussion and it can be viewed at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VQPQ-OaJyhU. Students were also introduced to the VTAC Course Search and Explorer found at www.vtac.edu.au and given the opportunity to investigate the vocational sector using the Australian Government ‘MySkills’ website at www.myskills.gov.au
